Ingredients

2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup neutral-tasting oil (such as canola or vegetable oil)

1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat Oven

Set your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine Wet Ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until well combined.

Add Oats

Stir in the rolled oats, making sure they are thoroughly coated with the maple syrup mixture.

Prepare Baking Sheet

Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.

Spread Granola

Pour the granola mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out evenly.

Bake the Granola

Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Remember to stir the granola every 15 minutes for even cooking and to prevent burning.

Check for Doneness

The granola should be slightly crunchy and have a golden-brown color once done.

Cool and Store

Let the granola cool for about 5 minutes. Break up any large clumps if you prefer a loose granola texture. Store in an airtight container.
